||With great sorrow, this spring has brought us the loss of two close friends and long-time members of the Society. We were very sad to learn that our long term member Doug Smith passed away on April 20th, 2017. It was just last year that Doug presented his farewell program at our March Public Meeting before moving to Cortland, NY., to be closer to his family. Doug was a passionate rail traveler and amassed many miles all over the world. Doug was also a WNY celebrity for all his years on TV, radio and ballparks all over the region. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Polly and family. He will certainly be missed by all, may he rest in peace.
||Then just five days later, April 25th, 2017, we learned of the passing of our friend Marty Phelps, founder of the Medina Railroad Museum. Marty was the driving force behind the museum in Medina and his passion for preserving our railroad heritage will be missed by all. He was a long-time friend of the Society, supporting all of our projects with the same passion he had for the Medina RR Museum. He was just at our February Train Show where he debuted his "portable station" that he had built to promote the museum. Marty's "huge" personality will surely be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Marty's family as well, may he rest in peace.
